To truly get a sense of how vast the ice really is one should take a small plane tour. Operated by Air Zafari, this excursion will take you in a 5-passenger plane that offers a guaranteed window seat and a safe and comfortable flight. The tours are flown at an ideal low altitude for the ultimate experience.
We will begin our trip at the Ilulissat Airport. There, we will meet our pilot, and get a short introduction and briefing about the tour. You can also ask any questions you might have before we fly. We will then board the plane, and enjoy a 40-minute flight that will take us out over the Icefjord and above the famous Sermeq Kujalleq glacier. You will get an feeling for how massive the glacier is by observing the huge drop between it and the water below. The giant glacier is constantly feeding the Icefjord with newly-formed icebergs, which we will also pass as we fly along the fjord at the lowest permissable altitude.
Please note that this excursion is dependent on the weather and minimum participant requirements. The excursion may be rescheduled or canceled - if it is canceled, you will be refunded.
